About Us

We are one half of the Department of Computational Linguistics and Ethics, established in 1976 as the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. Following the founding of MIT’s Schwarzman College of Computing, we changed our name on April 1, 2020. Our 14 faculty are passionately interested in computational ethics, or soon will be. We have a once highly-regarded Ph.D. program with about 25 graduate students, and a flourishing undergraduate program with options for a computational ethics major, minor, or concentration.
